Re: NFL uncapped -- Good or bad in your eyes?

I don't think prudent planning would make him open up the check book for new players. Didn't someone indicate that the biggest advantage would be our ability to clear out cap penalties? I figured the best move would be to take the top 25% of your salaries, and accelerate their pay mostly into the uncapped year. Fully anticipating a return to the cap, we could create a lot of space by only paying CP, Chris Samuels, etc. minimum salaries in the latter part of their careers as Dan has given them a huge paycheck in the uncapped year. Does that sound realistic?

Re: NFL uncapped -- Good or bad in your eyes?

First, the salary cap is a good thing, parity makes things so much more interesting and it makes coaching & strategy so much more important. I want the Redskins to win, but buying all the best players doesn't prove anything..

Btw, if there is one year uncapped does that mean we could accelerate the bonuses on our players to free up cap space for years to come? For example (making up numbers) if we owe Haynesworth a $42 million guaranteed split over 10 years, we pay him $4 million dollars per year on a prorated bonus. In this example -- if there was an uncapped year, could we just pay him $42 million, and then free up $4 million/year if the salary cap returns? If so, I'd *love* to have one uncapped year to pay off all those bonuses and free up cap space..

Im pretty sure that Snyder was thinking of a no capped year when he signed Haynesworth to that monster contract with so much money in the first two years.

Agreed. I think this was Exactly his logic. Buy now, pay later under a no cap season..? Am I crazy?
